What Clients are Saying







"Kelly is such a gifted photographer. She has an eye for capturing beautiful moments and magic - especially when working with children and families. I use her for business purposes and her communication, professionalism, talent, and quality are unsurpassed by none. I can unreservedly recommend McKenna Patterson Photography!"

"This was such a wonderful experience from start to finish. We had terrible weather or sickness when we scheduled the first couple dates. Kelly was so great about rescheduling. When the day finally arrived we had such a fun evening with our two little one's. It's stressful trying to get little kids to take pictures and Kelly was so great with us. The pictures turned out wonderful and we will always cherish them. I also LOVE that it didn't cost me a fortune to get pictures taken. I HIGHLY recommend going with McKenna Patterson Photography, we will be using them again:)"

"Kelly did such a fabulous job taking our family pictures. There were 7 adults and a crazy toddler. The pictures are fabulous and you'd never know that we were at home or that the little guy was in full blown toddler mode."

- Jessica Moebius









"We couldn't recommend Kelly more highly for a family photo session. In past years, family photo sessions have been stressful, with our taking our little boy to a portrait studio somewhere in a setting that felt rushed and impersonal. This year, we learned about the great work that Kelly does from one of my colleagues, and we couldn't be happier with her session with our family. She came right to our home, which itself made things a million times less stressful. In fact, not only was the session not stressful, it was downright fun. We got to spend a very generous amount of time playing in our yard and cuddling, while she took photos. The toddler and baby were both happy and relaxed, which led to natural smiles. Kelly encouraged them to take breaks to eat, nurse, have diaper changes, etc whenever needed and without any rush. I told Kelly at the outset that I'd be thrilled if we came out of the session with just one reasonable photo to use for holiday cards. Well, things went so well that now I'm having a hard time narrowing down which photos to use for the card and which to order for wall prints. Kelly's turn-around time with the photos is ridiculously fast. We cannot recommend Kelly more highly, and will absolutely ask her to do our family photos in the future!"

"We chose Kelly to take newborn pictures of our sweet baby boy in June 2016. My husband and I could not have been happier with Kelly's services. Her professionalism, creative eye, colorful personality and sensitivity to the needs of myself and my babe made the session a memory on its own. The photos completely captured the love and preciousness of our new family. I would recommend her to anyone looking for newborn or family photos. Thank you Kelly!"

- Amanda Isaksson





"I would absolutely recommend McKenna Patterson Photography! I have worked with Kelly twice to capture images of children using the handmade scented play dough that I sell online and have been thrilled with her work. I was in need of lifestyle photos for my website and social media, and the response to her work has been so positive and has driven customers to my site! It's not easy to photograph children, and Kelly is really able to capture their spirit in an unobtrusive way (not to mention my product as well!) Nothing is forced or contrived, so when you see the images they just come alive! Kelly is such a pleasure and her work speaks for itself. I cannot wait for our upcoming family photo shoot!!"
